A couple of years ago, July 1995 to be precise, we had organized a NATO Advanced Research Workshop entitled
a "NATO Advanced Science Institutes Series" book under the same title, edited by Serge Luryi, Jimmy Xu, and Alex Zaslavsky, is available from Kluwer Academic [ISBN 0-7923-4169-4]
In addition to NATO, the 1995 Workshop was sponsored by a number of agences, including ARO (US), DRET (FRANCE), ONR (US), PHANTOMS Network (EU), Motorola (US), Nortel (Canada) and the US DoD European Office.
The workshop was held on a French island (Ile de Bendor) in a wonderful Mediterranean setting. It was judged a great success. The partial list of attendees (invitation only) included Herbert Kroemer, Klaus von Klitzing, Karl Hess, Kostya Likharev, Arto Nurmikko, Paul Solomon, Horst Stormer, Armin Wieder, Eli Yablonovich ... a number of R&D directors and VPs of large corporations and the president of Cambridge University ... total of about 60 people.
An attractive idea suggested by several participants of the previous meeting is to make the "Future Trends in Microelectronics" workshop a regular event, perhaps with a three year period. Note that three years seems to be the doubling period in current versions of Moore's Law (contrasted with the original one year).
